Want more visibility? Smartphone training with The Vlog Academy

Gals, Are you ready to step up to be more visible this year but need help getting started?

Many of you will be aware that I highly recommend using video to promote your work, and yet I held myself back for years because I had my ‘professional TV presenter hat on’ and thought it was better not to do anything at all if it couldn’t be ‘TV studio’ quality. I did the same thing with my podcast, as I’d worked in radio I figured I couldn’t achieve the same standards so for years didn’t bother, finally I launched a podcast (Alcohol Free Life) which has reached 270k downloads before its first birthday!

Just look at how times have changed!, a huge percentage of people watch video content (and often on their phone!) and whereas at one time you really did need to invest a huge amount of money in a top class camera crew, now you can share you message online using your smartphone.

HOWEVER, there is an art to doing it well!

I can really recommend the Eye Storm programme, where a good friend and colleague of mine, Mi Elfverson (founder of The Vlog Academy) offers holistic support for women who are passionate about what they do and want to share their message online, without having to hustle or lose their authenticity.

To resolve or not to resolve, the experts share their tips

Its a debate that’s raged for years, should we make resolutions for new year or go with the flow?  In years gone by I have exhausted myself trying to stick to my resolves which are usually thoroughly unrealistic so I am very much in the camp of NOT making resolutions of the ‘I resolve to lose weight’ ‘I will go to the gym daily’ kind…because I almost certainly won’t…(well I hope I might drop a bit of weight but resolving to go on a diet is unlikely to achieve that)

Having said that though I do think its good to take some time for reflection at the end of a year.  I’ve borrowed the idea from the lovely Jo De Rosa founder of Quantum Sobriety and Inner Guidance retreats, to choose a word for the year, Jo says it acts as a kind of gatekeeper for all that you focus on, people on my Media Hub facebook group have been toying with ideas such as Abundance, Focus, Authentic, Accomplish, space, Spectacular.  In The Sober Club, the membership community I run, words such as Connection, Joy, Happiness have popped up.

Jo by the way is queen of ‘resetting’ and empowering yourself to be your best self, check out the incredible retreats at Inner Guidance including the one I am hosting at the end of Jan and in May 8-10th Sobriety Rocks www.innerguidance.co.uk

I also like the idea of setting intentions or goals, and making a commitment , being clear on what you want is far more productive than making a ‘resolution’ which tends to be merely berating yourself for what you haven’t done well the year before.  I love creating vision boards to literally see what I would like to manifest, and create some affirmations that will work for the year ahead.

I intend to reflect on the year just gone and practice gratitude, even for the bits that weren’t so good,  hopefully I can find the learning in there somewhere….and I will definitely create that vision board.  I am going to set definite diary dates for self-care, for me that means going to walk by the sea, so as I don’t live near it, that’s going to mean a trip, minimum monthly even if its a quick train ride to Brighton to blast away the cobwebs walking along the sea front!

I asked some of the changemakers and colleagues I have been working with this year to give us their thoughts on setting intentions for the New Year ….

Often our thoughts do turn to doing something about our weight or fitness levels,

Nutritional therapist and fitness expert Louise Mercieca says.

If top of the list for many people at new year  is to lose weight or eat healthier, people can be unrealistic and set themselves up for failure!  Drastic changes rarely work in the longer term, so it is best to be gentle on yourself!   How should you really set achievable goals and not be like the estimated 90% that fail with resolutions?

Don’t banish everything in the first week of January.  Instead gradually make changes, this way you won’t notice them as much and are more likely to stick with them

Make a plan but make it for the whole year – something relevant to you and your schedule.

Involve friends and family in goals and plans so you don’t feel isolated.

Set realistic goals in small steps and allow yourself one indulgence a month so that you don’t feel you are depriving yourself, this way you are less likely to give up completely

Drink more water, it’s amazing how many people are dehydrated and yet this actually will make you less efficient at metabolising fat!  Start with day with hot water and lemon.

Look after your gut health, when this works you will manage your weight more effectively include both pre and probiotics in your diet.

Move more but within your own capabilities.

Don’t compare yourself to others especially those you only see on a screen or magazine cover.

Stay calm! Cortisol (stress hormone) increases abdominal fat storage so please don’t create more stress with your New Year’s Resolutions!

Sleep – never underestimate the healing powers of sleep. Lack of sleep also affects your hunger hormone Ghrelin; That leads to poor sleep = increased appetite.

Love Yourself 

Its something I talk about a lot, and have only found possible in recent months, but its a great idea to start with ‘body positivity’

Carolyn Bointon doesn’t class herself an ‘expert’ in positivity but she has a lovely idea, Carolyn says..

I’ve learned that over people’s emotions impact on me so I strive to make friends appreciate the good in themselves, whether its a compliment on their hair or clothes or a simple ‘wow you handled that well’ I find surrounding myself with people who feel good  about themselves makes me feel good too! So not entirely altruistic but a good resolution and one that I can keep!

If you’re looking for more fulfillment  in 2020 here’s a comment from Nadine Searle

‘Follow your heart and listen to what it is telling you.
Give yourself the gift of some calming connection meditation everyday. It needn’t take up much of your time but it will be a valuable habit to cultivate in 2019. Spend time in nature if you can or establish a delightful ‘me time’ space……tune into the rhythm of your breath and use the Mindfulness practice of gentle questioning. Ask your heart “What do you need?” ” What direction you might take?” “what do you really want to do?”, “How best you might serve the universe or just serve yourself?”…….resist the temptation to answer these questions, instead just continue to listen to what comes up.
We have all the answers we need within ourselves if we only just listen. This practice will lead you to a happy, healthier you in 2019′.

Ever heard of The Wheel of Life?  Leah Dixon writes..

There are 3 steps to successfully reaching your goals and one of them is more important than you think:
1.The Wheel of Life is a coaching tool that emcourages you to look at your life in 8 parts. You choose these, but generally areas such as career, health, relationships, hobbies, finances, personal development, spirituality and social life are good examples. Look at your life and review where you are at and decide on your most important priorities. Rate each area from 0-10 and get a clear picture on what needs to be worked on and how urgently. Once you have decided on your most pressing goal (consider anything under 5) that needs urgent attention, the next step is visualising the future outcome.
2.This is the fun part, it is also the one many people overlook. Its not enough to say ‘I want to be a size 10’ and put a photo of yourself 20 years ago on the fridge. That’s the past. Allow yourself to dream of the future you who has realised your goal already. This can be done in meditation, before bed or on waking, when our brains are more receptive. So imagine what would reaching your goal feel like? Engage all of your senses in this dream. How confident would you feel walking down the beach in your bikini at your ideal weight? How desirable would you be as you feel the sun on your toned skin? Notice how strong and flexible your body feels swimming in the sea. What would you say to yourself? What clothes would you be wearing for an evening out? What compliments would people give you? Your subconcious cannot tell a dream from reality. Engaging in this visualisation everyday will mean your body has to catch up with this new future version of you. It will also make any changes more enjoyable as you relish in the achievements your future self has already made.
3. The how is the final stage that people usually go straight to. Yes researching and planning is important but don’t skip step 2. Break down your big goal into manageable chunks. Find out who has already succeeded doing what you want to do. There’ll be a book, an app, a blog or a workshop that tells you how others have done it. Use their knowledge to achieve results. Adapt it to suit you. Modelling is a great technique to achieve success. If you want to be more confident find someone you admire and copy their body language. Babies learn to walk by modelling those around them. Its the easiest way to learn and adapt. No need to reinvent the wheel. If there’s already a tried and tested method then use it. Just be sure to commit the time and energy where its needed. If you’re not a morning person then don’t plan to go to the gym before work. Reaching your goals isn’t a punishment so don’t make it one.You’ll find once you’ve got your vision the universe will line up to place people and resources in your path to help you with the how. Aligning your current self with the vision of your future self will create your new reality. So if you’ve tried writing down your resolutions and then skipping straight to the planning stage back up and immerse yourself in visualising your new future where your dreams are already a reality.

To Conclude..

So at the start of a new year take some time to reflect on the one just gone, ask yourself what you want for the coming year and tune in to how you might go about making that happen.  If there is something you have been putting off, something you know has to be addressed there’s no better time than harnessing the energy of a new year.  Treat yourself to a new journal and scribble away, read my blog posts on writing being the best therapy, it might change your life!

You’ve heard me say it many times before…If there is something you want to achieve, whether is a new business, a charity, the book you always wanted to write, the relationship you know you deserve, you will need to visualise it, imagine it and then take action and above all remember

You Don’t have to get it right…you DO have to get it going’

I wish you a wonderful blissful abundant and joyful …and healthy New Year and of course becasue of the work I am now doing, I wish you a sober one too!

Sober Curious? Ditched the booze a while ago?

Do you now want to focus on health wellbeing and positivity?

Have you found yourself saying…”I will only have one drink”…but then you finish the bottle!

Maybe you’ve stopped drinking but are still feeling unhealthy, overweight or out of sorts….or you’ve woken up at 3am berating yourself for drinking too much?

The Opposite of Addiction is Connection

My new project is The Sober Club online community. Despite talking about holistic health on BBC Radio 2, writing five books including the number One Amazon bestseller ‘Imperfectly Natural Woman’ and running imperfectlynatural.com, there was one missing piece of the ‘holistic health’ jigsaw for me and that was ditching the booze.

I now encourage people to ask themselves not “Am I drinking too much?” but rather “Would my life be better physically and emotionally without alcohol?” I take a very positive approach and want the focus to be on health and wellbeing, passion and purpose.

In The Sober Club you can connect with others and have open conversations without any judgement. You can learn therapeutic techniques such as EFT (emotional freedom technique), get inspiration and support to make lifestyle changes and discover sober tools and tips.

Come along and learn how to set healthy boundaries around relationships and put yourself first….and much more!

90 day course

In The Sober Club you will get:

  • ‘Get the Buzz Without the Booze’ – 90 Day Online Course
  • Live monthly talks with me, and advice from leading health, wellbeing, and mindset experts.
  • Access to an exclusive Facebook community.
  • Mindset Buzz – Guided meditations, hypnosis audios and relaxation videos.
  • Nutrition and Fitness Buzz – Detox advice, recipes and exercises.

So many people find that once they have removed the Alcohol Obstacle they have a new perspective and want to increase their fitness, their mental wellbeing, set new goals and challenges. In the coming weeks we’ll bring you so many pieces of the Optimum Wellbeing ‘jigsaw’. There will be something for everyone whatever stage you are at. Its all about positivity and moving forward.

If this resonates with you The Sober Club has just opened up and there is not one but two special gifts if you sign up now, see below the hypnosis audio worth £9.99 courtesy of Ailsa Frank and an exclusive audio by Janey Lee Grace – How I stay motivated.

BONUS: Get a free hypnosis download when you join The Sober Club: Ailsa Frank’s De-Stress Your Life (worth £9.99)

I have been alcohol free for over a year and it is no longer part of my life, it feels almost as if I have forgotten about it sometimes (which is great but also a shame not to bask more in the achievement!)   I love the sober club because I get to celebrate everyday with my new “tribe” the amazing “joy” of being sober and gives me a platform (via the FB group) to interact, support, encourage others.   I’m so grateful for the new connection the sober club provides!

Alistair

I’ve finally realized it’s not just about putting down the booze and staying sober, it’s so much more than that! It’s a mindset change, looking at everything as a whole, caring for both my physical and mental health.  The “Sober Club” website is FAB!! I am really enjoying working through the modules in the 90 Day course “Get the Buzz Without the Booze”. All Janey’s podcasts are there to listen to at any time, there is so much expert advice available on nutrition and fitness, and also some great tips on how to take care of, not just my body, but my mind too which I never had before.

CBD Oil with THC or without THC? What is the Best?

Do you really know your CBD oil?

There has been SO much written about CBD oil in recent months and in my latest Janey Loves Platinum Awards we introduced a new category as we had some entries from brands with CBD oil skincare, CBD oils and even CBD infused chocolate!  There is of course controversy though, especially around which is best, the CBD oil with THC (which we think of as giving the ‘high’) or without. I asked guest writer Helen Bell to explain for us:

Over the last five years we have seen a great amount of growth with the CBD oil industry. Consumer interest is continuing to climb on the back of several high profile celebrities throwing therefore weight behind the product. As such, long has there been a myths and legends surrounding the use of CBD oil, potential consumers who may well benefit from the use of CBD oil are put off by the notion that all CBD oils contain THC. 

Breaking up these myths surrounding THC and its inclusion within CBD products is partially what this article is about. In that manufacturers are recognising the need to produce CBD oil products that do not contain the psychoactive substance of THC. As for many employers there is still a stigma around the consumption of THC in the workplace. But what is THC and who does it produce this psychoactive effect?

What is THC?

THC otherwise known as tetrahydrocannabinol, is another chemical compound which makes up part of cannabis plant or industrial hemp. THC is psychoactive element of these plants which activate certain parts of the brain to affect pleasure, memory, perception and several other areas. 

This happens when the Cannabinoid receptors located in the brain come into contact with the THC which activates these receptors thus producing those associative effects that you come to expect from the consumption of THC. 

How Does THC Affect The Body?

As mentioned these Cannabinoid receptors activate in the brain and in turn trigger the release of dopamine. This creates euphoria in the user. Other areas of the brain such as the hippocampus are also affected. This gives users a harder time to process information as this is the area responsible for collecting and storing new memories that you form. 

Thus, many dislike the idea of losing some form of cognitive control over their bodies and as such refuse to consume or touch CBD oil than contains THC. 

Therefore having a range of products which cater to both markets is the most appropriate option for manufacturers. So we are seeing a widening range of products that contain only CBD oil and no THC for those who wish to benefit from the CBD without having to deal with the side effects associated with THC. 

But What Is Better CBD Oil with THC or CBD oil Without?

Well it is really down to personal preference, if you are someone who wishes to take CBD oil while at work we would suggest sticking to CBD oil which does not contain it.  THC free oils  it could keep you relatively cognitively focused meaning you can go about your day in the usual way.

However, if you are someone who enjoys the effects given by consumption of Marijuana then legal CBD oil with THC might be for you. With the psychoactive compound still present in the CBD oil it will give you that feeling of euphoria which is otherwise known as a ‘high’.

Six Classic Interview Questions You Must Ask Yourself About Your Brand

I remember back 25 (ahem) years ago when I was training to be radio broadcaster, we were taught to always speak to ONE person…never say ‘all you out there!’ and when interviewing guests, we were taught the classic standard interview questions that all interviews are based on.  They are of course the 5 ‘W’s …and a H…

Who?

Why?

What?

Where?

When?

…and How?

Of course having worked in radio and TV as an interviewer for over 20 years and having interviewed thousands of people, I can honestly say that those words never come to mind and even if an interview was conducted using them as a framework, they wouldn’t be in that order. However, when teaching a ‘How to Market Yourself’ workshop recently I shared these words with the delegates to help them ensure that they are prepared to be a great interviewee.

There’s no doubt you need absolute clarity on:

Who you are (you are the brand!)

Why you do what you do – what’s the emotion behind your work?

What exactly do you do, what are your key messages?

Where is it happening? – geographical info if it’s an event, or online etc.

When? – if it’s a launch or date related event.

How do you work – how do you deliver your product / service?

So I’d urge you if you haven’t already, to do a practice run for if you’re asked those questions, prepare your answers and practice answering those questions (say it out loud, it’s muscle memory!) a few different ways so that you always sound spontaneous and not scripted.

Ask Yourself …

But here’s another use for these words, as I coached a client privately I realised that she was finding this preparation for being a great interviewee step tricky,  not because she hadn’t quite honed her key messages or got her tongue around how best to describe her ‘USP’, that’s quite normal, but it was because her business had grown organically, she had almost fallen into it by accident because she had a real passion for helping other people and so retrained as a coach but hadn’t ever done the business plan or mapped out the strategy.

It’s true for so many ‘heart centred’ businesses, we just find ourselves with our own business often by accident, clients get recommended and suddenly we’re off!  Sometimes it’s a while before we can take stock and recognise that we may have created something that wasn’t exactly what we wanted.

So I’d urge you in addition to having your answers ready for the media, to take a long hard look at those questions in relation to how you feel about your work and the way your business works.

Ask yourself

Who:

Who am I?  This can be a big one, in the case of my client she wasn’t altogether happy being visible as ‘the brand’, she was hoping to hide. Really be honest about whether you’re prepared to gain confidence and to put your head above the parapet and be seen. You can also ask the questions ‘Who are my ideal clients and what is it that I can assist them with? and ‘Who do my products or services best serve?’

Why:

Why do you do this work?  This is sometimes referred to as the ‘Why that makes you cry’, if you do have a heart centered business really be honest with yourself about this one, it’s unlikely you are doing it purely for money, but make sure that you aren’t blocking yourself from being financially abundant (often the case!)

What:

What exactly is your USP? What is your business in a sentence and what’s your point of difference?

Where:

Where do you usually work, and where are your clients or customers? This should be an easy one!  Though if it’s currently one to one with clients, it might get you thinking how you could leverage your time and reach more people globally by offering Skype sessions, writing a book or creating an online programme.

In the words of the great Mark Zuckerberg – he apparently asked this before implementing any business idea – ‘Does this make us grow?’

When:

When is it happening?  This question could help give you clarity on what you hope to achieve and by when, if you’re planning to write a book, even if its self-published – set yourself a deadline, it ensures you get cracking!  If you’re launching a new product or programme prepare your marketing schedule ahead of the launch date.

How:

How does it all work together? Ask yourself how you will do it all? How do you access the help you need? Ask yourself ‘Is there something I still need to learn? Do I need more training, a partner or a joint venture?

Be willing to recognise you may need support, hey even Batman needed Robin! (not a spoiler for the new movie!)

Rocketing out of Despair

It’s everywhere, and Rocketman is on a different planet to other recent biopics. It’s a must see in my opinion for anyone who wants hope that there is a way out of whatever situation they are in.

The film is set against the backdrop of Elton’s addictions, in a group therapy session (where Elton played by Taron Egerton, sits resplendent in a devils costume complete with huge feathery wings and a cap with horns) reveals that he is an addict.  The scenes, interspersed of course by spectacular clips of Elton performing, take us back to his childhood where his mother is strangely distant, his father is seemingly not interested in him, and only his grandmother seems to want to nurture the burgeoning piano playing talent.

This lack of affection means Elton is painfully insecure and it’s not until he changes his name and creates a new identity for himself that he can really feel successful, but as life spins out of control he is eventually forced to take a rain check on the partying and head for rehab.

I was struck by the anxiety portrayed in this film, despite the immense wealth and notoriety he was deeply unhappy, He was finally able to reinvent himself though and has been sober for 28 years, he said in an interview that six months before he got sober, he gave away or sold all his possessions, he said he must have had a premonition that his life was going to change.   Change it did and Elton said in a recent interview about the film,

It’s a film about Redemption, about asking for help.  I was ashamed of myself, but  didn’t want to live like that, I wanted to become a good person, the person I didn’t know.  The  message is  if you are in a bad way, ask someone for help, It’s difficult asking for help, but my life since I got sober has been quite the most amazing journey, I don’t have to wake up feeling like I don’t want to wake up’.

It’s a story of reinvention passion and a sort of salvation and as the final song I’m still standing says he’s a ‘true survivor’  I got to see it first at a press screening and it was lovely to see Zoe Ball there too, here we are – sober sisters!

If the movie encourages one person to ask for help for their anxiety, addiction or depression it will have done an amazing job.  It reminded me of how important our families really are, in my podcast episode I speak about my own experience of family constellations, and how it changed my relationship with my own mother, in every family there are entanglements and past trauma that can still be having an impact on the present.  If you are interested in this work check out www.familyconstellationsherts.co.uk Its life changing work.  The lovely thing about this movie is that Elton is able to forgive at the end, and I hope it’s not too much of a spoiler to say he is finally able to hug his younger self.  The film is about much more than a rock n roll lifestyle which eventually crashed out, its much more about finding who he really was, As someone said recently on facebook (and I’m mortified that I can’t credit him or her cos I can’t find it again) ….

‘The goal isn’t to be sober, the goal is to love yourself so much that you don’t need to drink’

untitled 2

And what am I talking about?

Well the title of my talk is ‘Sobriety Rocks’ – Who knew! I’m sure many of you have seen my posts, blogs and events I’m running such as next Monday’s ‘Selfcare for the Sober Curious’ event. I want to encourage people who know or suspect they might feel better physically and emotionally without alcohol in their lives, to recognize that there is a whole new world waiting. I really have been amazed to discover, ( to quote Catherine Gray’s bestselling book title) ‘The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober’.

Of course, I am passionate about holistic living so my take on it all is to inspire people towards mindful drinking or quitting and then focusing on good nutrition, ditching the toxins et al.

I’d love to see you there, or if not, of course you will be able to watch it live online.
